Tampa police say a 44-year-old man was killed Thursday morning while walking across Adamo Drive.

It happened while it was still dark at 6:30, and police say the driver of the truck that hit him had the right-of-way.

Police say Charles Bilal was wearing dark clothing, making him hard to see. The driver, who was heading eastbound, pulled over afterward and tried to help.

Charges are not expected.
